Just when I thought I was out (of scandals to report)
The Latest Beltway Investigations

Just when I thought I was out (of scandals to report), they pull me back in!
Doesn’t anybody realize that when you get in bed with the government, you have to expect the diseases it spreads?
That’s especially true when you get in bed with the Clintons and the Obamas. Really any liberal politician…
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not foolish enough to suggest that Republicans don’t get their hands dirty, too. I’m simply saying you wouldn’t catch Reagan with a woman under his desk in the Oval Office, and it only took Nixon ONE wrong move to resign, unlike our current president.
So it shouldn’t be too surprising that there’s another high-level scandal flying under the radar…
It involves Obama’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) appointee, Alejandro Mayorkas; Hillary Clinton’s brother, Anthony Rodham; and a close friend of the Clintons, Terry McAuliffe – the former DNC Chairman, current Virginia Gubernatorial candidate and high-ranking Hillary-for-President campaign official.
It also involves Terry McAuliffe’s company, GreenTech – another initiative spawned out of Obama’s green energy scam… excuse me, “War on Coal.”
Citizenship for Sale
At the heart of this latest scandal lies a foreign investor government program that issues employment-based visas known as EB-5s.
And in a lot of ways, the program makes sense. It was established in the Immigration Act of 1990 in an effort to generate and save U.S. jobs. High-level foreign investors come in with a minimum of $500,000 (although $1 million is the average) to invest in a targeted employment area – a region of the U.S. with high unemployment. The money is then used to create or preserve at least 10 U.S. jobs. Nothing wrong with that, right?
